THE RUNDOWN

• KEY MATCHUP: Utah's Tyler Kepkay vs. SDSU's D.J. Gay. Both are 6-foot, first-year point guards.

Whoever gets the upper hand could make the difference in the outcome.

• FAST FACT: Utah has a 50-11 edge in the series and has won 9 of the last 11 in San Diego.

• PLAYER TO WATCH: Johnnie Bryant has shot 55 percent over the past five games, and his 3-point shooting off the bench could be key for the Utes.
